USA retain Junior Ryder Cup
Europe won the singles 7½ to 4½ at the Junior Ryder Cup on Tuesday, but the USA won the tie 13½ -10½.
Europe won the singles 7½ to 4½ at the Junior Ryder Cup on Tuesday, but it wasn’t enough to stop defending champions USA, taking the tie 13½ -10½
This because of the massive 9-3 lead the Americans had opened up at Gleneagles in Tuesday’s foursomes and fourballs.
In truth Europe hopes were ended early on the final day.
Trailing 9-3 at the start of the day, Europe had to take the final session by the same 9-3 score just to force a tie, but their hopes were ended when they lost three of the first five games and halved another.
Star once more for the United States, who won by an incredible 22-2 margin two years ago, was Jordan Spieth.
The 17-year-old, who finished 16th in the US PGA Tour’s Byron Nelson Championship in May, won all three of his games and looks to be a player with an especially big future.
(Europe’s names first, US lead 9-3 after the first day on Monday):
C Lloyd bt A Paolucci 2&1
A Boulden halved with E Talley
A Eckhardt lost to J Spieth 3&1
K Spilkova lost to D Chen 1 hole
M Lampert lost to J Thomas 4&2
K Tidy bt K Park 1 hole
K Ventura halved with J Liu
M Gidali bt G Howard 2&1
J Kukkonen bt O Schniederjans 2&1
M Molle bt A Lee 5&4
T Detry bt D McCarthy 2&1
I Deilert halved with C Isagawa
Singles result: Europe 7½, USA 4½
Match result: Europe 10½, United States 13½
